Ten frames to go, S38,000 at stake and a full house of 1,400 people at Preston's Guild
Hall. Those are the statistics for this evening's entertainment. STEVE DAVIS and DENNIS TAYLOR were the players the majority were expecting to be present, but whether that forecast will prove correct will have depended on how
JIMMY WHITE and the one and only ALEX higgins have been cueing in recent weeks.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
